Current Skincare Routine for Dry Skin

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I’m going to share my skincare with you, this routine has helped cure my dry patches and help me deal with my dry skin in the winter!

Step 1: Vapour beauty clarity cleansing oil

I always use this to take off my makeup, it is a good oil cleanser and it has been working for me. It is quite pricy so I am trying to find a comparable one from the drugstore!

Step 2: Juice Beauty Exfoliating Cleanser

This is a great skincare product, my skin feels gorgeous and soft after I use it. It is a gentle enough exfoliator, at least for my skin, to use everyday. So I do use it everyday as my face wash, and it is so moisturizing and really nice.

Step 3: The Body Shop hydrating toner Continue reading “Current Skincare Routine for Dry Skin”

February Beauty Favorites!

Hi guys! Welcome back to our blog. I haven’t written a post in a little while and I’m so happy to be back. Today is the day when we talk about beauty favorites from the last month, so let’s jump into it.

Face Products:

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair 

This concealer is something I’ve had for a long time but I was never able to make it work for me before this month. I apply just a little bit with my finger or a sponge underneath my eyes and on anywhere I want to spot conceal and it truly looks beautiful with sheer-medium coverage. Before I was using too much product and it kept going cakey and looked horrible under my eyes, but now I love this concealer!

Eye Products:

Smashbox Full Exposure mascara in Black

This mascara is so pretty on my lashes, it makes them look fake and so long. I love that this gives me a little bit of volume, black lashes, and makes them long. The brush is huge, so that is my only issue with it, but that does make sure that I get all my lashes coated. I love that this mascara keeps my lashes curled too!

Tartelette Matte eyeshadow palette

If you couldn’t tell, this was the month of discovering old things in my collection! I recently pulled this out and now I am obsessed with it. The shadows really work for me now and I enjoy them! My absolute favorite look is using the four purple toned shadows in the middle row, it is so pretty and compliments my brown eyes.

Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in Icing

This is a stunning eyeshadow, it is a jelly so I usually apply a glitter glue (my favorite is the nyx pigment primer) and then I just pat it on with my fingertips, it is so stunning and glittery, and the formula doesn’t crease. This has been my go-to for a quick and low maintenance glittery eye look.

Lip Products

Urban Decay cream finish lipstick in Violate

This purple-pink cream lipstick pairs gorgeously with that warm toned purply eye look I have been doing a ton of. It is so pretty and the formula is so moisturizing and comfortable. I love using this as cream blush also, it is really pretty and I can’t get enough of using it!

Buxom Full On Lip Cream in Patricia 

This is a gorgeous lip topper, it is pink and has shimmers that are white-gold and blue in it. Although that might sound tacky it is actually so pretty on its own, or over lipstick and you guys already know I love the Buxom gloss formula. It is a little bit cooling because it is a plumper but it makes your lips look really juicy and soft.

Those are my favorites for this month! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I will see you all with a new one very soon. Let me know in the comments something you’ve been loving!

Beauty Empties: January + February

Hey guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today it is time to talk about empties! These are some of my favorite posts to write, so let’s get into it-

Makeup

Becca First Light Priming Filter

This primer is so pretty on the skin and it really does hydrate and give you a glow. It keeps my skin from feeling and looking dry under foundations. I’ve already repurchased!

Tarte Gifted Mascara

I wasn’t jazzed about this mascara in my original review, but it is gorgeous once it dries out a little. It is easy to work with, it is volumizing, it is super black, it doesn’t get everywhere throughout the day, I would repurchase!

Tarte Tartiest Mascara

I really enjoyed this mascara while I had it, but I don’t miss it at all. It makes your lashes really black, but sometimes can really clump them up. I don’t want to spend $20 on this mascara, so I won’t repurchase. Continue reading “Beauty Empties: January + February”

What’s In My Shower: Cruelty Free Hair and Body Products

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share with you the products in my shower. When I went cruelty free it was hard to find cruelty free bath products, so here are some brands and products I’ve discovered that I love, and are cruelty free!

Body Care:

I could not get the body wash bottle to show up true to color in photographs, sorry!

Everyone body soap in the scent Citrus+Mint – I love this body wash and it isn’t super expensive. I highly recommend that you try this brand out, they have more scents and you are sure to find something you will like.

Tree Hut Coconut Lime Body Scrub – This is the best body scrub! It is a nice texture, has a good consistency and leaves your skin moisturized but not oily. This scrub smells amazing and I think you need it in your life.

Alba Botanica Shave Cream – I enjoy this shave cream, it makes my skin really soft and helps stop you from catching your skin or nicking yourself. I also love the cremo shave cream which is just as cheap and also cruelty free.

Hair Care:

Acure pumpkin and organ oil shampoo – This is such a lovely shampoo! I enjoy that it doesn’t dry out my scalp or my hair and it gets my hair incredibly clean. Highly recommend this if you want a gentle shampoo that will also clean your scalp well.

Giovanni 2chic avocado and olive oil shampoo  – This is the other shampoo I keep in my shower. It doesn’t get my hair quite as clean as the Acure, but I would recommend this if you have dry hair and need moisture!

Top 5 Favorite Drugstore Makeup Products

Hey guys! Welcome back to our blog. I’ve done this post before, so consider this a part 2. I’m here to share 5 more makeup products from the drugstore that I absolutely love. Let’s  jump into it.

1. NYX Control Freak brow gel

I’ve already used up a tube of this and am on my second one. This is a great medium hold brow gel that keeps my brows in place all day, and really sets the color in place too. I can always trust that my brows will look just as good at the end of the day as they do when I first apply my makeup, and it is so cheap, I love it.

2. Milani Retouch and Erase Concealer

This concealer has been my go-to! It was featured in my favorites last month, and I almost use it everyday. It is so hard to find a concealer that doesn’t crease on me, but this one doesn’t crease and it gives good coverage, and it is lightweight. I prefer this over my Urban Decay Naked concealer!

3. NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe

This brow pencil is my absolute favorite! It is so easy to work with, I’m sure you guys have heard me talk about it before, I just love it. It has the best consistency and the best color selection. I always find that my brows come out well when I use this pencil and I highly recommend it.

4. LA colors High Shine Shea Butter lip gloss

This clear gloss goes over all my liquid lipsticks, I also wear it all the time by itself for my everyday look. It is so moisturizing and it is also so cheap that I cannot believe how amazing it is. I use this sometimes at night just as a lip balm and I have already repurchased it.

5. NYX pigment primer

This is the best pigment primer I’ve ever found, it also works great just as a regular eyeshadow primer since it goes on so smooth. I always use this when I wear glitter since it makes my shadows look so foiled and it prevents fallout.

That was it for my top 5 drugstore products at the moment. What have you been loving from the drugstore, let me know in the comments below!

Sweet Almond Oil shower gel

Hello my lovlies! I want to start this blog with an apology. The last two blogs for me have been deleted because life has been very very busy and i forgot to draft them before they got published. So if you have been following Hailey and i for awhile now and noticed that a few of my blogs have been deleted thats why.

Im perfectly fine, theres a blog going in depth about whats going on in a life update coming soon!

Onto the blog my ladies!

Now i suffer from very sensitve skin like you wouldnt believe. When it comes to clothing and soaps they pretty much have to be all natural and cleaned with speical non scented soaps and all that. Lately i’ve been really liking Crabtree & Evelyn’s Sweet Almond Oil Bath and Shower Gel.

If you’ve ever baked before, and used almond excract, thats EXACTLY what it smells like, but….Just like almond excract….do not taste it…becasue it doesnt taste as good as it smells.

January Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I’m going to share with you my January favorites and I have quite a few makeup and skincare items that I’m loving so let’s get into it:

Makeup:

Milani Retouch and Erase concealer – This concealer has been my favorite! It is light, it has a nice texture and doesn’t crease under my eyes. It sets well with powder and gives good medium coverage.

Bobbi Brown Desert Pink Blush – This deep pinky rose blush (It is the blush on the right side in this photo) was something that I used with all my warm toned looks this month. It made my skin look luminous and naturally flushed. I love Bobbi brown blushes and I wish they were cruelty free!

NYX Pigment Primer – This eye base is so nice and it keeps my shadows creaseless. I also find that my shadows are easy to blend over this base and that it keeps pigments/glitter on my lids and not all over my face.
